Nice hotel

Posted Apr 2, 2015
My family and I chose to stay at the Clarion over the L'auberge where the rest of our family was for a wedding. I was surprised by the amenities offered at the Clarion and how clean it was. It looks like it was recently remodeled and is kept well. The pool area was nice and quiet. The bistro was nice, although we only had the coffee. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We had an issue with an unnecessary charge that was resolved in a timely manner and handled with great communication from the staff.

Nice location - High Enough price for the service

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: We liked the location in Del Mar. There is an ocean view, but it's fairly limited. The room overlooked the parking lot.
Cons: The men at the front desk were not friendly at all. There were 2 lovely ladies who tried to be helpful. The door sticks on the closet.
Location: Quaint area within Del mar...beautiful views of the Ocean a few minutes walk.
The hotel is a bit old, but quaint. The restaurant service was poor...only open a few hours a day. there is a library and limited computer access for internet. The men working the front desk definitely need training in customer service. Their answers to our questions were non-informative and curt. Del Mar fortunately is a beautiful spot. We did find a glass with a horrible lipstick stain on it, and the front desk said that was unfortunate...but did nothing else to compensate us. Although in a beautiful location, I would look for another hotel.

Best value on the ocean.

Was a little disappointed,when I stayed before I got a much larger room, and this time with my 6foot 6inch husband, a smaller one, but otherwise it is awesome. Love the location, staff is friendly, and you can't beat the view. It is walking distance to everything in Del Mar.

Clarion del mar

Posted Jan 2, 2015
Hotel room had an odd smell. Rear parking was not logistically easy to carry in luggage from since only stairs were available from the parking lot. HVAC unit in room was extremely loud and kept waking me up. Power was out for nearly 2 hours after check in; no explanation provided and no backup generator. Bathroom vanity too large and too tall.

Nice hotel

Posted Dec 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
I enjoyed the stay in this hotel. The room had almost everything including a microwave and iron, and the room itself was also comfy and clean. The bus stops were only in 3-5 minutes walk from the hotel, which was quite convenient to those who don't have a car like me. There were also many good places for food near the hotel which was nice. The staff in the hotel were also very friendly and helpful. The only bad thing was there was no kettle in the room so you could only brought bottled water from the front desk or drank tap water.
